Practice Solving Equations
 In this activity, you will practice solving: Practice Solving Equations* one step equations* two step equations* multi step equations* equations with variables on both sides One way to solve equations is by using INVERSE OPERATIONS.The inverse of addition isThe inverse of subtraction isThe inverse of multiplication isThe inverse of division issubtraction?multiplication?addition?division? Example 1: One step equation4x      =  -12 4              4x=divide both sides by 4solution Example 2: Solving two step equations  2p       =   -242p  -  3  =  -272p   = + 3+3 2divide both sides by 2add 3 to both sidessolution Your turn! Solve the one step equation.Fill in the missing numbers.5y     =    -5y    = Your turn! Solve the two step equation.Fill in the missing numbers and operations.3y  +  8    =  233y     =    15y    = Solve the two step equation by using inverse operations-4y  -  1    =  15-4y     =    16y    = Solve the equation with the variable on the right side.51  =  4x   +  3=   4x =  x  Solve the multi step equation.-20  =  5n +-20  =  5(n + 2) =   n=   5n + 10 Solve the equation with variables on both sides.+ 5x                + 5x-3x + 14  =  -5x + 6 + 14  =  - 14x = = -8 Solve this multi step equation.3(2x   -  1) - 2x  =  216x  -         - 2x  =  21         - 3 =  21x   ==Divide both sides by 4Distribute the "3"Combine like termsAdd 3 to both sides Solve the multi step equation.+ 4x                 + 4x-2x          =  -4x -2(x + 9)  =  -4(x - 1) - 18      =  42x    =  x =
